Curtis Jones starts as Klopp makes two changes for Napoli – predicted Liverpool team news

Posted by

Liverpool find themselves in a far more enviable position in Europe in comparison to their efforts in the English top-flight with qualification through to the knockout stages already secured.

Still, the possibility of topping the group remains, as challenging as the prospect of a four-goal victory over Napoli, the in-form side on the continent, sounds.

It’s not a total impossibility on the Reds’ end, though nothing short of the quality seen in our 1-0 win over Manchester City will likely be enough to snap up the lion’s share of the spoils.

Hopefully, a big result at Anfield will not only make up for the horror show of a defeat against Leeds United but also push the side to make a strong finish to the first-half of the campaign.

  2. You could include Keita and Oxlade-Chamberlain with Jones in that category. They haven’t performed even when fit. When a 36 year old out performs these players questions need to be asked/answered.
    Players are no good to the team if they spend so much time on the treatment table.
    Lallana was a very good player when fit but that,sadly, wasn’t the majority of the time.
    The present day schedule for top teams/players calls for exceptional fitness. YNWA
